Joe Staley thought he was going to be drafted by the Chiefs, then Ravens

Things worked out pretty well!

The San Francisco 49ers hit an absolute home run when they drafted left tackle Joe Staley 11 years ago. The team selected linebacker Patrick Willis with the No. 11 overall pick, and then decided to make a move to get an other first round pick. They traded their fourth round pick that year and their first round pick in the 2008 NFL Draft to the New England Patriots to acquire pick No. 28 in the first round.

Reuben Foster has been charged with felony domestic violence. But that doesn’t mean his status with the San Francisco 49ers is in jeopardy. Not yet, anyway. NFL Network’s Jim Trotter has the following:“49ers GM John Lynch says if charges are proven true that Reuben Foster struck a woman, ‘he won’t be a part of this organization going forward.’ Says the organization needs more information at this moment.
